Mighty Eagle coming to iPhone, iPad Angry Birds

This December, in celebration of 1 year on the App Store, the TiPb Award winning Angry Birds will be releasing an update that includes the ability to in-app purchase Mighty Eagle as well as:

  • 15 new levels
  • New Shiny Golden Eggs
  • New Gameplay
  • New Achievements

Might Eagle will cost $0.99/£0.59/€0.79 and can then be used to skip through those levels that you just can't beat. However, you'll be restricted to using the Mighty Eagle only once per hour, requiring you to wait before you can use it again.

In addition, you'll also have the new option to freely smash up levels you have already completed with the 'regular birds', so you can try and fill up the destruction gauge.

Not only is this update going to be released in celebration of their one year anniversary, but you can also attend one of the 200+ meetup points worldwide for an Angry Birds Flash Mob. If there isn't a event happening in your area, you can set up an event and get people to join in the fun.

If you don't already have Angry Birds, you can buy it on the App Store for $0.99/£0.59.

Take a look at the "The Mighty Eagle" trailer after the break. Are you looking forward to the update? Will you be spending money on Mighty Eagle? Let us know in comments!
